I was under the impression that it would go ahead but without all the fireworks and floating lanterns.

Looks like the fire works and balloon has been cancelled, but the floating loi krathongs, which is a quiet process, is now allowed.

I thought Loy Kratong was cancelled in respect for the passing of His Royal Highness?

Lost of both domestic and foreign tourist revenue may have changed a few minds.

Does anybody know about the monkey feast - elephant round up or lotus throwing events? What's happening with them. How can I find out?
